Nigel Farage says Im A Celeb bosses have approached him several times

Nigel Farage has revealed he has been approached by ITV bosses 'several times' to appear on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The former politician turned TV presenter added that despite always ruling out appearing on the show in the past, he would 'never say never' to following in he footsteps of Tory MP Matt Hancock.

Farage spoke out in response to a segment of hosts Ant and Dec's after-show podcast, in which the presenters were told by a fan they should get him to appear in the jungle.

Dec labelled it a 'very, very good idea', while Ant added: "I’d like to see that".

Discussing the matter on his GB News show, Farage, said: "Well there's been a lot of speculation over the years about me going into the jungle. It's appeared in all sorts of newspapers.

"The Daily Star seems to talk about it every single year that goes by, and it is true. I have been approached several times by I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and I've always ruled it out.

"I’ve never thought it would be a good thing to do. I thought it's all rather humiliating, frankly. But I suppose you can never ever say never.

"I’d love to get actually some of your reaction, some of your feedback on whether you think I should be in the jungle, or whether you think we should leave it to people like Matt Hancock."

Last week, meanwhile, another Conservative in Jacob Rees-Mogg told the same broadcaster that Hancock had made a 'mistake', adding that he was 'ill-advised' to appear on the show.

"I think the treatment he is getting has gone beyond good fun and become deeply unpleasant," he explained.

"And it rather worries me that people think it is funny to humiliate somebody in this way."
